Southampton's Import Services welcomed 100 VIPs to the grand opening of its new distribution centre, located adjacent to its busy container port.

Guests included representatives from retail clients like Tesco and Argos.

As part of the launch proceedings Import Services announced the findings of independent research into the port-centric distribution model.

The report, which will soon be available on the Import Services website, will help those with an interest in supply chain logistics. It covers the strategic impact of the port-centric model compared to traditional regional and national distribution centre models.

Managing Director of Import Services, John Eynon, said: "As the first UK port of call for container ships plying from the Far East to Northern Europe, Southampton represents a logical route for the import of goods into the UK. As such Import Services believes the Port-centric model is more efficient than the traditional Regional and National Distribution Centres for retailers. We therefore wanted to demonstrate this through the production of an independent research paper."
